Yes/ and only because I don't have a choice in Narrators for audio books.
I fell in love Ms. Kenyon's work with the Chronicles of Nick series so came here looking for more info about the characters, in particular Kyrain and Acheron. I did not have high expectations for this book after reading the other reviews. Because of this I was pleasantly surprised. The narration is almost as bad as people described however better then I expected. I listen to all books a 1.5 or 2x speed and I think the way the women drolled on at speed 1 would have probably driven me crazy. The other thing that helped was listening to Acheron first.It was really nice learning about so many things that are hinted at in the Chronicles of Nick like the truth about Kyrain's wife and such.
The best thing about the book is the characterization. The characters are witty and compelling
The worst thing for me about the book was all the sex. My wife would never believed I listened to such a "smutt book." I love Urban Fantasy (Jim Butcher is my favorite author of all time) However it sucks to be a man who likes Urban fantasy because 90% of it is Urban Romantic Fantasy and 40% minum of those books seem like nothing more than sex and emotional foreplay.
Next book I intend to listen to is Seize the Night so I can found out the story behind how things went so bad between Acheron and Nick.
I have an audible issue
i started with the teen version of these books and ran out of them so i was looking to see what else Sherrilyn had written. found these and just could not stop getting them. i love the main charators and the side ones are great also. it's one of those worlds i would just like to be in. some of the books in the series don't really apply but they are all good reads. love the narration.
I loved the follow up from Fantasy Lover. The way all of the characters interacted from the previous book made it a wonderful listen. I was constantly saying to myself "Yeah, I remember this or that about that person from before.
I just love the way she does all the different accents.
Loving all things that go bump in the night
Not even a little. Night Pleasures is one of my favorites in the DH series...and I couldn't finish the audio version of it.
Hmm. In this one Kyrian is my favorite, but only because Nick isn't in it as much as I'd like.
Unfortunately, just about anyone else. The accents were too jarring (too sacharine southern for Amanda and Tabitha, I couldn't figure out Kyrian's, and Talon's was just...no.) If I had my greatest wish fulfilled? It would be this one, and Night Embrace to be re-recorded by Holter Graham.
Nope. I couldn't even finish it in several sittings.
This book has been disappointing.I can't think of anyone who would enjoy it.
NO!! What a waste of my book credit!
She sounded like she had something in her mouth, like a piercing. I think she also made it sound as if she despised the main female character as much as I have.
I purchased 3 of the Dark-Hunter series when there was a special and this was the 3rd one for me. I have to say that I found the frequent, graphic sex scenes to be distracting and the plot line to be thin. There are so many in this series that I thought that maybe I would get into the stories eventually, but I never really did. Sorry, but I rate this as just "Ok."
Be the change you wish to see in the world.
I thought the sex was overdone. It was not germaine to the story in my opinion. I love a book when the characters are well-developed and the sexual scenes leave you to your imagination. I am not interested in continuing on with the series. I'm not sorry I tried the book on the 3 for 2 credits.I do recommend you either use headphones or if listening in your car... make sure your windows are rolled up. Nothing worse than sitting at a red light when the story goes into great detail on a sex scene and your windows are down. Might have made someone's day though!
Yap, loved the story. But I did start with the Chronicles of Nick.
I don't care what anyone else think's, although I'm probably different in that I read the "Chronicles of Nick." first before starting the DH book's. But i truly did like ever thing!
While this is not one of what I would consider my top series, it did keep my interest and I will give the next one in the series a chance. Right now, I would consider this series a good fill in until the next books in my top series come out.
The story is amazing and kept my interest the entire way...
Only heard this reader do this series and I loved her...very easy to follow...
The entire book moved me...always love the endings...
